Gore: Bush blocks global warming progress
by UPI

NEW YORK - Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore said in a New York interview that U.S. President George Bush is "blocking any progress" made against global warming.

Gore said on CBS' "The Early Show" that his new book, "The Assault on Reason," spells out exactly how the Bush administration leads the country using the politics of fear.

"That's an abdication of U.S. leadership in the world," Gore said. "We are the largest source of global warming pollution. We are the natural leader of the world. All of the other countries in the G8 are unified and support taking action to save the planet's environment for us as human beings. And President Bush is opposed to it and is blocking any progress."

"We are putting 70 million tons of global warming pollution into the atmosphere today and every day," he told "The Early Show." "This is a moral issue, and the fact that our country is not providing leadership and, worse, is blocking progress, should be an issue that brings protesters out, that brings people to speak their minds, loudly and clearly and forcefully on this."
